The Smart Betting Club is on the hunt for new tipping talent! Read more on our special Britain’s Got Tipsters horse racing contest…
Introducing… Britain’s Got Tipsters!
Britain’s Got Tipsters is the name for our new contest, where we are on the hunt for quality tipsters as yet unknown to the general public. Here at the Smart Betting Club (SBC) we firmly believe there are many as-yet-undiscovered betting experts out there, who simply need a helping hand and the right platform to showcase their skills.
Already via the SBC private members forum, we have uncovered a number of outstanding tipsters such as ‘Badrinath‘, who between October 2014 and May 2015 made an 18% ROI from over 700 bets, all advised to SBC members for free. Although Badrinath has just started his own paid service, we have several more continually tipping everyday for SBC members such as Greeneye, Trickster, The Admiral & our Fink Tank System and we are keen to uncover many more yet! (Read more about these other free tipsters we offer)
Therefore to help root out as many top tipsters as possible – we have set up this special Britain’s Got Tipsters contest, where we are offering the winner the chance to win a paid contract to supply betting advice to SBC members. The winner will then join our existing network of expert tipsters.
How The Competition Works
Our Horse Racing Britain’s Got Tipsters competition will last approximately 3 months, running from June 29th to September 26th 2015. After inviting applications, we shortlisted 12 tipsters to take part, each of whom is proofing their bets live on the SBC private members forum.
Unlike other talent shows we won’t be having ‘eliminations’ or knock-out rounds as we are keen to allow each tipster the time to prove their ability. We feel that over a 3 month period, we will be able to get a very real flavour of just how each tipster works, their racing expertise & professionalism, attention to detail and of course – if able to showcase a profit.
As all of these bets will be posted live on the SBC forum each day so those of you who are active SBC members will be able to follow each competitor and their progress….Plus if you want to, the actual tips themselves.
To help keep track of performance, we are also posting regularly updated results spreadsheets for each tipster and blog posts to mark their progress.
The ultimate winner will also be decided by an SBC panel of experts, who will monitor and observe each participant over the full 3 month period.
What It Will Take To Win!
Whilst the ability to turn a profit will naturally be crucial in finding the eventual winner, our panel of experts will look at a whole range of factors, including:
- A clear demonstration of racing expertise (i.e. a profitable record)
- Consistency of approach to tipping
- Professionalism of service
- Proof the tipster knows where their edge lies
- All other supporting evidence (for example, well written bet explanations for each tip)
The goal naturally is to find not just any old tipster, but the most serious, professional and reliable expert going – exactly the type of tipster you might feel confident about following with money.
The Rules Of Engagement
To ensure the competition is fair, we are only allowing tipsters to put forward single horse racing bets either to win or each way plus lay bets (meaning no pie-in-the-sky accas that might get lucky). We are not allowing Best Odds Guaranteed prices, nor the usage of any other special bookmaker offers. All lay bets are being settled at Betfair SP minus 5% commission.
Each tipster is only allowed to quote prices from a set group of ‘approved bookies’ (so definitely no Betfred or Stan James) and availability of any advised odds quoted is double-checked for accuracy. All tips at advised prices can only be quoted from 9am the day of racing.
The Prize For The Winner
After the 3 month period has elapsed, the SBC panel of experts will decide upon the ultimate winning tipster. He or she will then be offered a paid contract to supply their tips exclusively to SBC members.
Watch Out For Regular Updates
All SBC members can follow the tips from all 12 tipsters for the lifetime of the contest for free as part of their Smart Betting Club subscription.
We will also be updating on the progress of those taking part for those of you not available to follow their tips each day so keep an eye out of that.
All Part Of The Profitable Betting Quest
We very much hope that through this competition we will open the doors to finding a whole new wave of genuine betting experts, much like the 30+ professional racing tipsters we report back upon each month in our Tipster Profit Reports.
The goal as ever – whether via this competition or the Tipster Profit Reports is to help ordinary people make money betting, whether that is for the first time or as part of an ongoing quest.
